Nashville native Jelly has officially earned his first No. 1 hit at country radio with “Son Of A Sinner.”
The singer took to social media to celebrate the news, sharing in a lengthy Facebook post: “There is no greater reward for a singer and songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee than to have the #1 song on country radio …Now imagine that happening to a guy that grew up in this town… a guy that at every turn the first 25 years of his life he made the wrong decision. Imagine everyone telling that guy he had no chance at country radio. ‘You’re too over weight, you have too many tattoos, they will never let another convicted criminal on country radio’ – now imagine country radio proving everyone wrong and taking the chance on the song, the message and the man.”
The singer/songwriter continued his message as he graciously thanked his fans: “If you can imagine that, then you can understanding why I’m so filled with gratitude as tears stream down my face while I type this, I currently have the number 1 song on country radio. Thank you to my fans who called and requested this song at their local radio station and celebrated like I did the first time they heard it played— I do this for y’all. Thank you Country Radio and all the DSPs for making Son of a Sinner my first number 1 at country radio. I vow to never let you down or forget the chance you gave me when everyone told you not to!”
“Son Of A Sinner”, produced by ERNEST and Ilya Toshinskiy, takes the No. 1 spot from Jimmie Allen’s “Down Home,” which sat at the No. 1 spot for multiple weeks.
